4 of us for dinner, most meals good. I had a eye fillet steak special only to be served rump or sirloin! Very basic meal with a few scallops , chips and prawns for almost $40! The thai was very good and the chicken special was tasty. Lovely restaurant but don't have high expectations for the price. I don't believe a restaurant can serve up fantastic Thai and European food. One or the other usually.

Coming up on 3pm we were looking for somewhere to have a late lunch and this restaurant was recommended. And we're very glad we went. The staff were great and not at all put out that we arrived so late into the afternoon. We can thoroughly recommend the platter for 2. The mini spring rolls were the best I'd had in a long time - everything was piping hot and tasty. We were able to sit and look through the information we'd gathered that morning with no pressure to leave so the staff could have a break before evening service. Well done Oasis - we'll come again.

Cafe Oasis bills itself as a Thai/European restaurant, and serves everything from Steak dinners to a small range of Thai food suited to NZ palates. Business lunches are good, and dinner meals are large and tasty but reasonably simply plated. The restaurant is licensed, and also BYO Wine.
Staff are friendly and attentive.

Unfortunately the restaurant ultimately from a complete lack of style and decor. It doesn't appear to know wants to be a lunchtime cafe, or a dinner restaurant, or a coffee roaster. The restaurant decor is a hodge-podge of previous owners' design, some Thai memorabilia, and advertising for the restaurant's home roasted coffee.
The large cafe cabinet that is used during lunch service sits empty and out of place against the wall at the entrance to the restaurant in the evening. Sacks of coffee beans sit on the floor below the kitchen servery, and rather ugly coffee roaster dominates the centre of the restaurant. Unfortunately the roaster is surrounded by utensils on the floor, and large plastic bins, and just adds to the overall lack of any style. Bags of house branded coffee beans adorn shelves on the wall.
Tables are all of different sizes and designs- although it does nothing to add to the atmosphere.
I enjoyed the atmosphere, but probably wouldn't pick to come here if I was wanting to celebrate a special occasion.
